Meeting business demands today means keeping up-to-date on important issues. Most recently, the swine flu or even compliance-related topics such as recent COBRA changes affect how San Diego organizations do business. How to manage these issues can be challenging, and even risky. Where do you go to get information on such a wide range of topics?
San Diego Employer's Association (SDEA) is a nonprofit organization that has been serving San Diego businesses since 1914. Often, new members will comment, "I wish I knew about you sooner, you are San Diego's best kept secret." SDEA carries out the vision of being a premier resource for owners, human resource professionals and business leaders.
SDEA provides valuable tools for businesses to fulfill their strategic business needs, ranging from benchmarking with wage and salary surveys to employee and customer satisfaction surveys. Are you a new business owner/leader? SDEA can assist you with understanding the piles of paperwork that can seem overwhelming but necessary. What? You don't even know what paperwork is required? SDEA is just a phone call away.
The most valuable tool is the ability to pick up the phone and talk to a live person, not a dreaded recording, about a difficult employee issue. This consultation line is an unlimited service, with no timekeeping or controls on how often a member can call. Hot topics continue to be dealing with difficult employees, understanding common pay pitfalls and dealing with leave issues. Most members understand the value of being able to call and talk to a consultant, and feel it is like having a personal trainer -- a business coach.
SDEA has been training business leaders and professionals for decades and offers top-notch training courses ranging from certificate programs, professional development courses, to online (e-learning) training. Do you have new supervisors that need to understand what they can and can't do when managing employees? SDEA's popular Supervisor Skills Series offers key topics from hiring to firing employees. The training courses can be customized and brought on-site to meet organizational needs. Looks like the secret is out; give SDEA a call!
